Biography

Francisco Correia work has a particular taste for highlighting the absurdity of the invisible systems that agency everyday life in contemporary society. Jobs, economy and extinction (both individual and collective) are oftentimes taken into the realm of fantasy in order to create narratives that operate on the border of reality and fiction.

 

These ideas are mostly bound to an overall focus on storytelling and auto-fiction. Both text and exhibition are guided by narratives that shape the characters and environment in which they take place. In different bodies of work narrative is developed taking into account the specificities of the context and architecture wherein they are presented. This is a key-point to his practice: to see exhibition-making as storytelling.

 

In other words, he aims to create small worlds that through objects and text carry the public through fictional narratives that reflect upon contemporary human condition.
